    So candy has a relation to Freddy's because marionette was there at candys so I think William made candy first then after what happened he change the name

    Mat I think that has a connection with candys some how if u finish the night u will see a relation of a last name of Schmidt just like in that so before Freddy I think it would be candys

    10:11 If people can be replicated, then what if William was replicating himself? That’s why he always comes back, and maybe Michael is a copy gone rogue. Undoing all of his “father’s” wrongs. Just sayin’.

    idk if this is controversial or not beacause ive not kept up on fnaf but wouldent fnaf sisiter location be first in the timeline because alot of the games after have the name on his paycheck as mike or michael? of course fnaf 4 mightve been before but sl would be after because hes an adult. also in some of the games he gets fired for odor which would be explained by him being decayed in the Sister location cutscene. well thats just a little theory of mine. dont hate me :)

  • Zach J

    You mentioned that the two names need to be proofread, what if that was for a reason because Hudson was hallucinating the name as some thing other than Mr. Afton. ( because it was Mr. Afton but he saw it as some other names)

    So while watching back on some fnaf, I thought of something. You guys remember allllllllll the way back in fnaf 3, you play those mini games to get the good ending? The last mini game features what everyone called “shadow Bonnie.” What if that was actually foreshadowing glitchtrap? When moving the character, it glitches out, can travel between all the mini games, and is a bunny. This also would make sense because of the foreshadowing of golden freddy having 2 lights on in his eyes in the bad ending, referencing the two souls. If Scott already had golden Freddy having 2 souls in his mind when making fnaf 3, what if he also had glitchtrap in his mind? But it’s JUST A THEORY…

    I'm still not convinced the ball pit isn't just imbued with the memories of Cassidy's spirit that people can experience if they enter it, kind of like Dumbledore's memory storage basin in Harry Potter.

    I watched through all of the FNAF Theories and realized that Scott trolled/confused the entire fan base with "TWOs" throughout the series. Starting with the TWO purple guys that we initially confused about back when the series first started, turns out there's two purple guys, William and Michael. And then the TWO Bites, where we heard about the bite of '87 and then see the crying child bitten in FNAF 4, where at 1st we were confused about whether the scene was the bite of '87 or not ( Cue the Markiplier " Was that the bite of '87 ?!?! " Clip ). Turns out there are two bites in the series, the bite of '83 and the bite of '87 We initially thought that Golden Freddy was being possessed by one spirit, Cassidy, and turns out that there are TWO spirits within, Cassidy and the crying child. We though the one and only baddie in the game was William Afton right, oh no, turns out that Baby is second villain moving forward. TWO villains. Heck even the title of the game was trolling us, FIVE nights at Freddy's, looking at the title be like " Owh, a game with just 5 levels" , with TWO additional 6th and 7th nights. I wonder if there'll be not just one, but TWO Reluctant Followers in the upcoming Security Breach, either that or two villains in the game, one being Vanny which we know about, and the other.... for us to find out soon (?) Am I thinking too much about this :D ?

    If in the book Baby was created to kill Henry does this mean Baby could've convinced other animatronics to kill Henry and if Michael is actually Henry's son not William's and if he looks like Henry could they kill Michael because he looks like Henry which is why the animatronics wanna kill Michael?

    The fnaf questions Matpat tries to solve: "What is happening at the end of help wanted?" "what can we expect going forward?" "the f*ck is the time traveling ball pit doing there?" The fnaf questions I think about: Are the animatronics furries? Or I guess William Afton is since he made them... Wait could he and Henry build an IRON MAN SUIT?!

  • ✨Elizabeth Afton✨

    Just a thought. I feel like the reason the ball put takes people back in time is because Cassidy AKA Golden Freddy wants people to see how they all died and is giving a sign that they are trapped because of a purple man 😂

    All right so, I know that he doesn’t get to every single comment but I just really wanted to point this out. In the game pizzeria simulator there is a huge ball pit (not the one with the weird clown thing on it and the ladders) the liability risk for that. It is at nine. I feel like Scott was trying to tell us that there was something off about the ball pit without actually telling us, I think he was trying to hint at it. I was watching a play through of the game and when I saw that I texted my friend about it and he was as surprised as I was. I just wanted to point that out because it was really cool that he hinted towards that.

    This is a month from release but I just realized. Remember the fnaf 3 jumpscare for spring trap. If that is William and you play mike could that be an answer to why the death animation isn’t like the robots lunging towards you, it’s almost like William knows you and doesn’t wanna attack without a second thought like the other animatronics do. It’s probably nothing big but I thought it was kinda neat to think about.

  • Spring Locked 87
    Spring Locked 879 dagar sedan

    I had a weird and crazy theory on "Into the pit" that might make sense yet not, but I don't know how to fully explain it. What if the Springbonnie that Oswald saw is part of a different timeline or a thing of agony? Theory on a different timeline: So if he is, no one can see him except for Oswald because he doesn't belong to the 1985 time and Oswald isn't from it either. It sounds stupid, but I think it's possible that it's either William Afton coming back from the future or a follower of his that disgusted themselves as Springbonnie, so that's why he's able to show Oswald what had happened without others being there and was able to follow him back through the ball pit. Plotholes: 1. Why can people see Oswald in the past? 2. Why is the suit still there at the end with nothing there? 3. Why can no one else see Springbonnie when he took Oswald home? Agony theory: A part of William Afton's agony made the Springbonnie suit active just like the other things in the stories powered by agony. I'm not sure, but it could make sense why it would have teeth in the suit and possibly why no one else can see him except Oswald. It's also possible that the agony powering the suit can cause illusions or how the suit was empty at the end of the story yet still be there. It's also a possibility that he has similar illusion technology like with "To be beautiful" and in "The twisted ones" and "The fourth closet". If it was illusion technology, it would explain why only Oswald can see Springbonnie since he had seen him before yet no one else has, so the illusion doesn't work on him in the present. It could also explain why the illusion wouldn't have worked on him in the past, it's because he isn't supposed to be there and would notice things that could be out of place to others or the fact that Springbonnie could have chosen to show himself to Oswald with the illusion chip. Another comparison is like in "To be beautiful", the students could see how Sarah changed with what Elenor did yet her friend and mom didn't see any changes and yet she still ended up becoming a big pile of trash without the illusion Elenor provided. Plotholes: 1. Unsure of the power of agony and if there is anything to do with illusions or if it's an illusion type of chip active powered with the agony of William Afton 2. Timeline doesn't match for a Springbonnie agony suit to exist with William Afton still alive at the time Who knows, it could even be an agony, illusion powered time traveling Springbonnie suit from after William Afton died

    Sooo Charlie dad is dead because he killed him self with a robot/animatronic and William Afton is dead then who is making the animatronic for the next game unless as you said ‘A story that allows Afton to be a creation of it own self’ so that like that what you said I think it is good so wow good job 👍🏻

Edit: Wait a minute, you know how after the night guard dies, there’s something weird on the screen, like when a robot gets damaged that might show up for there eyes, have you ever thought that every night guard is a animatronic..?

    So I was watching some old FNAF videos and in your video Game Theory: FNAF, The FINAL Theory! (Five Nights at Freddy’s) - pt 2 you walk about how Nightmare is death. Now clearly we know that's wrong now but you mentioned how only Nightmare and Golden Freddy have jump scares that are a static screen then crash your game. You also talked about how Golden Freddy and Nightmare have inverse colours. What is this is a symbol of the 2 spirits in Golden Freddy's suit. Nightmare is the spirit that can't see while golden Freddy is the one that can (like you talk about in one of your book videos).

    If it helps, the books are ending with 11 in the series. I searched up the meaning of the number 11 and it came up with this: Angel number 11 is a message from the angels concerning your soul mission or greater life purpose. When the angels send you messages containing Master Number 11 they are sending you inspiration and encouragement to develop your abilities in ways that will help all of humanity. Angel number 11 symbolizes the principles of spiritual enlightenment and awakening and is a reminder from our angels that we have come to this physical world from the realm of spirit. That might help in some way, it may not be confirmation but it might indicate to something coming in the 11th book :)
